AFFI set for 2014 Franchise Expo

The Association of Filipino Franchisers Incorporated (AFFI) is all set to hold their annual Filipino Franchise Show.

This year, AFFI has invited franchisers from all over the ASEAN region to participate in the show as part of efforts to prepare for the ASEAN integration slated for 2015.  Ricardo Cuna, owner of Fiorgelato ice cream franchise and head of this year’s show committee says, “This year we are inviting franchisers from all over ASEAN to showcase their homegrown concepts to explore the possible synergies between local and regional franchise brands.” Franchising is one of the industries set to be opened up as part of the integration and is expected to lead to an influx of foreign franchise brands in the country.

He adds that the franchising industry is expected to continue posting double digit growth and is expected to see the entry of more new players. “We are seeing more and more emerging concepts and startup businesses joining the show, which shows that the industry is still and will likely continue to grow,” Cuna asserts. AFFI is one of the largest industry bodies in the Philippine franchise industry, counting among its members local brands such as Aquabest, Binalot, Figaro, Lots' A Pizza, Sweet Corner, among others.

The show is considered one of the biggest events in the Philippine franchise industry. It attracts thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs who come and see hundreds of the country's top franchise brands.  Apart from an impressive roster of participating franchise brands, the show also features companies from allied industries and suppliers.  Among the major sponsors for this year’s show are BPI Family Ka Negosyo , Seaoil Philippines, St. Francis Generic Drug, and The Generics Pharmacy.

The show would also feature seminars and workshops for aspiring entrepreneurs and franchisers to be facilitated by several AFFI members, as well as BPI Family Ka Negosyo and the Intellectual Property Office.
